India, Australia players pay tribute

The Indian and Australian cricket teams paid tribute to late English umpire David Shepherd.

Both the teams observed two-minute silence before the start of the third one-dayer in New Delhi.

The players and the Australian support staff lined up before the start of the match and observed silence in memory of the Englishman, who died of cancer on October 29.

The charismatic 68-year-old was one of the most popular umpires in cricket's history. Shepherd stood in 92 Tests and umpired three successive World Cup finals.
